To date, the flames have destroyed millions of acres of land in the country, killing nearly half a billion animals and displacing thousands of people.
Over 20 people have lost their lives in the fires that are still burning in many areas, reports CNN.
In a statement, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison revealed that the country needs $1.39 billion to help rebuild communities affected by the fires.
